Minecraft gives away content to celebrate 4 years on Xbox

Minecraft Skin Pack

Minecraft has been on the Xbox for four years and Microsoft is celebrating that milestone with a free gift.

The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft turns four years old today, and the company is offering a 4th Birthday Skin Pack for free to everyone playing Xbox editions of the game.

The gift includes access for Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.

The content allows users to change the look of their characters and the pack is available for free free through May 16.

The popular game was purchased by Microsoft for $2.5 billion in 2014.

The new skin pack features T-shirts modeled after various enemies and animals, known as mobs, from the universe of Minecraft. These include the iconic creeper and the adorable chicken.

Here’s the new skin pack:
